  3. Bowen Theory Education Center's first annual Symposium was held on September 30, 2011 with one hundred twelve persons attending.

    Dr. Daniel Papero was the speaker of the day and provided stimulating and challenging ideas for the attendees to ponder.

    It was a foundation for the next 9 months when the details of the concepts will be introduced to the students of Bowen Theory.

    The first session of the training focused on the human as an integral part of nature and the human family as a natural system. Eleven of the students, plus several BTEC Board members, took the challenge of learning to think "systems" and to become more objective about themselves and the systems they live in on a daily basis.
